Why would Saga mess with a good thing, unless, of course, DG-320s everywhere are just waiting to fall apart because of some bracing issue.
How does it compare to a D 500?
I think this shows the responsiveness of Saga. Bravo for them. They're the king of the budget Gypsy guitar. They can squeeze a nickel and make it sound like a dime!
So we're back to waiting for this model....
That's exactly it....the bracing is flawed. They sound fine...but are likely to have issues overtime, hence the recall on this model and the subsequent redesign.
You never know, they may hold up just fine. But there was definitely a serious bracing issue with that model.
My question is this: Should I even bother waiting around for this guitar if the wait is potentially more than a year? I've played it quite a bit and love the sound and feel but seriously, if Saga's output is two guitars every eight months is it worth it? Or should I save up for the next three years and buy something like an AJL? OR does anyone have some insider info as to when the next shipment may come around?
